A Warm Welcome to Matthew Rhys

Asylum Justice are excited to welcome our new patron, Matthew Rhys.

Born in Cardiff, Matthew has gone on to win an Emmy in 2018 for his role as Phillip Jennings in the acclaimed television series The Americans. He is also known for playing Dylan Thomas in the film Edge of Love and Daniel Ellsberg in Stephen Spielberg’s The Post. Matthew has been nominated for two Golden Globes.

Matthew has long been an advocate of Welsh culture. In 2008, he was honoured by being accepted as a member to the druidic order of the Gorsedd of the Bards for his contributions to the Welsh language and Wales as a whole.

As someone who takes such pride in his Welsh heritage, we are proud to have Matthew become a part of our organisation which seeks to welcome and include some of the most vulnerable people into Welsh society and culture.
